Save the Little Elephants




Introduction: Save the Little Elephants

i found an old rusty box with elephants on the side. i liked the elephants and used them for decorarion on a wooden box i mede for them.

Step 1: Remove and Clean

i used simple pliers for removal (the box was very rusty what made it easy). for cleaning i used universal stripper and metal brush (not on the photo). to remove the welding i used grinder with sanding paper.

Step 2: The Wooden Box

i used an old wooden shelf (no photo), used saw and sandpaper. put it togheter with little nails and woodglue. painted the box with wood varnish.

Step 3:

i glued the elephants with pattex glue. i took this photo with the glue not dry so it looks white but that disappeared when the glue was dry.
